Testing Teacher Candidates: The Role of Licensure Tests in Improving Teacher Quality - This book reports the work and findings of the National Academy of Sciences panel, the Committee on Assessment and Teacher Quality. The committee was asked to examine the appropriateness and technical quality of teacher licensure tests currently in use, the merits of using licensure test results to hold states and institutions of higher education accountable for the quality of teacher preparation and licensure, and alternatives for developing and assessing beginning teacher competence. (Karen J. Mitchell, David Z. Robinson, Barbara S. Plake and Kaeli T. Knowles, editors, National Academy Press, 2001)....
